Summer’s in full swing, and what says “summer” more than the Fourth of July?
Across blogs and websites, there’s no shortage of patriotic wedding and entertaining ideas. However, much of the inspiration involves a classic touch or vintage twist. Either that’s the trend now in general, antiques and vintage, or simply a throwback with good ol’ Americana. Either way, we’re sold!
Enjoy the inspiration in faded red, white and blue. May your Fourth be full of festivities and fun, but also incredible pride in our country, its storied past, and ultimately our independence as a country.

Light sand, a play on Sand (one of Pantone’s ten colors for Spring 2014), is an “amiable neutral” and a perfect color choice for a spring or summer wedding. It needn’t be associated with a beach celebration; sand works whether on the ocean or away.
The natural color is polished, elegant and versatile. Make it cool or warm. Leave a soft, lovely impression by pairing with pastels, or add depth with a bold hue; metallics are a great option, too.
Enjoy the inspiration!

Love is in the air… and fortunately for us, just in time for Valentine’s Day!
Think: glitter, florals, sweets and cocktails. YES. To please all, we’ve packed this post with our recent favorite wedding and non-wedding inspiration. There’s something here for every woman: pretty rose treats for home baking that can double as fabulous wedding favors and the perfect red nail polish and lipstick. Bouquets aren’t only for brides, and every woman needs a fabulous little red dress (or LRD). (For even more inspiration, visit last year’s post.)
Happy Valentine’s Day!
